ENTERPRISE HOLDINGS RENTAL SCAM PHOTOGRAPHIC EVIDENCE PUBLISHED

Car rental fraud victim exposes crucial photographic proof to show humanity the shocking subsequent vehicle damage used as part of highly-refined theft scam

The most important advice I can offer to any car rental customer is to take substantial photographs of the vehicle condition at the origination and the conclusion of the rental”

— David Howe, National Car Rental 'ding and dent' scam victim

FORT MYERS, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, July 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — SubscriberWise, the nation’s largest issuing CRA for the communications industry and the leading protector of children victimized by identity fraud, announced today the photographic proof of rental condition during the moment-in-time when the vehicle was returned to the crime scene at SW Florida Fort Myers International airport National Car Rental check-in location, as well as the subsequent photographic evidence revealing the shocking vehicle damage that occurred in the care of tortfeasor Enterprise Holdings.

The subsequent damage was conspicuously made in a close and convenient proximity to the ‘wear and tear’ that was part of an overall complex 'ding and dent' scam intended to financially implicate the crime victim through the origination of a one-way rental secured with a business credit card. This damage was a ploy designed to create an illusion of a legitimate claim to support a substantial money demand that included aggressive tactics to gain access to the victim's credit card and insurance company for undisputed and prompt cash settlement.

The damage was later photographed and then inserted onto a PDF by the Enterprise ‘Damage Recovery Unit’ with repeated financial demands directed at victim David Howe for payment of $502.80, an amount which Florida law may declare as felony grand theft under current statute. And in the most brazen effort to hasten the fraudulent payment repeatedly demanded by tortfeasor, the crime victim was threatened to have his credit severely impacted by a third-party collection agency if the illicit money was not paid to 'satisfy the claim'.

Although egregious beyond imagination is the photographic evidence revealing the subsequent damage, it’s only a mere piece in a larger corporate cover-up, including an incredible under-oath written statement directing law enforcement investigators to the WRONG VEHICLE.

In addition to a comprehensive hour-long presentation provided to Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi’s Consumer Protection Director Victoria Butler and senior investigators in Tampa, Florida, the complex systematic scheme and criminal evidence was shared with a field representative for United States Senator Marco Rubio and later communicated through an in-depth presentation to Mr. Rubio's legislative staff in Washington D.C. (https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20170318005007/en).

• See the photo taken at crime scene revealing nearly invisible, yet normal, ‘wear and tear’. The photo was sent real-time via the Verizon VTEXT server to the manager on duty after Howe became suspicious of the ‘ding and dent’ scam. The single photo established an uncontroverted record of the vehicle condition at rental check-in and protected the victim beyond reproach:

• See the subsequent photo that was emailed to crime victim Howe in a PDF from the Enterprise ‘Damage Recovery Unit’ with a financial demand of $502.80. The photograph reveals actual damage that could not have been the responsibility of the crime victim. It was the basis of a law enforcement investigation and meetings with lawmakers:

https://www.docdroid.net/cDDWbVb/photo-revealing-criminal-damaging-and-placed-on-victims-record-with-felony-theft-demand-of-50280.pdf

“The most important advice I can offer to any car rental customer is to take substantial photographs of the vehicle condition at the origination and the conclusion of the rental,” said David Howe, National Car Rental crime victim and survivor. “There may be many instances when agents will advise that ‘anything smaller than a golf ball is okay’. It’s critical that consumers blatantly ignore any instruction to dismiss minor 'wear and tear' and to instead take photos of every square inch of the assigned vehicle, inside and outside and even checking under-carriage to help mitigate easy-to-commit fraud by predatory rental agencies.

Related: Rental Car Checklist – Protocol for Protection

“And that recommendation cannot be made more strongly for each and every rental because there’s a pathetic lack of uniform and predictable standards for the car rental industry that places consumers at incredible risk of financial exposure with virtually no due process rights — even in cases of clear and convincing fraud,” Howe added.

“Of course, I hope to change that with my own criminal victimization,” Howe concluded. “In fact, my past efforts – as well as planned future efforts — with Congress and state lawmakers has proved to be profoundly therapeutic following what is undeniably the most abusive and anger-provoking life event I have ever experienced.”

DMA Tech Solutions Partners with PCIHIPAA to Help Clients Navigate HIPAA Compliance Regulations

DMA Tech Solutions and PCIHIPAA - HIPAA Compliance

The partnership will provide DMA practices a comprehensive compliance program that helps them save time and money navigating stringent HIPAA requirements.

Now, it is more important than ever for DMA to take a leadership role in helping our clients make patient data privacy and security a top priority.”

— Jeff Suglio, President DMA Tech Solutions

RICHFIELD, OHIO, UNITED STATES, July 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — DMA Tech Solutions (DMA) announced today its partnership with PCIHIPAA, a leading Payments Card Industry (PCI) and HIPAA compliance provider. The partnership is focused on protecting DMA clients from the onslaught of ransomware attacks, HIPAA violations, and data breaches impacting medical and dental practices throughout the United States. Under HIPAA’s Security and Privacy Rules, healthcare providers are required to take proactive steps to protect sensitive patient information. The partnership comes on the heels of an important announcement surrounding HIPAA compliance regulation. The Director of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office for Civil Rights recently stated, "Just because you are a small medical or dental practice doesn't mean we're not looking and that you are safe if you are violating the law. You won't be." In addition, according to the HHS website, just recently a Ohio healthcare provider had 42,625 patient records stolen. Protected Health Information (PHI) continues to be under attack as hackers strive to monetize the stolen data on the dark web.



“DMA Tech Solutions has been providing state – of- the – art IT solutions to healthcare providers for years. Now, it is more important than ever for DMA to take a leadership role in helping our clients make patient data privacy and security a top priority. We vetted many HIPAA compliance providers and believe PCIHIPAA’s OfficeSafe Compliance Program is the right solution for our clients. Our partnership adds another layer of protection for our clients. It's easy to implement and I'm confident our clients will experience savings, convenience and peace of mind." said Jeff Suglio, President, DMA Tech Solutions.

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, OCR has received over 150,000 HIPAA complaints following the issuance of the Privacy Rule in April 2003. A rising number of claims filed under HIPAA in recent years have led many patients to question whether or not their personal payment and health information is safe. As the government has become more aggressive in HIPAA enforcement, large settlements have become widespread and rising penalties for HIPAA non-compliance are a reality.

 According to HHS.gov, the types of HIPAA violations most often identified are:


1) Impermissible uses and disclosures of protected health information (PHI)

2) Lack of technology safeguards of PHI

3) Lack of adequate contingency planning in case of a data breach or ransomware attack

4) Lack of administrative safeguards of PHI

5) Lack of a mandatory HIPAA risk assessment

6) Lack of executed Business Associate Agreements

7) Lack of employee training and updated policies and procedures

“We are excited to be working with Jeff, Sam and everyone at DMA Tech Solutions. They have a proud history of providing IT solutions for growing practices. If Equifax can get breached so can a healthcare provider. We find that many practices don't have the resources to navigate HIPAA law, and are unaware of common vulnerabilities. We're excited to add the OfficeSafe Compliance Program to DMA's extensive suite of services. We invite every member to conduct a complimentary Self-Assessment to quickly identity key vulnerabilities in their practice.” said Jeff Broudy, CEO of PCIHIPAA.

Impact of "IP Literacy" is the Focus of 2018 IP Awareness Summit at Columbia University

The Center for IP Understanding will hold IPAS 2018, a global event devoted to increasing IP understanding for all

IPAS 2018 will explore the role of patents and other IP rights in a in an information-driven world and look at ways to communicate IP’s vital link to innovation, commerce and society”

— Brian Hinman, Chief Innovation Officer, Aon IP Solutions

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, July 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Center for Intellectual Property Understanding (CIPU) announced today that it is holding this year’s Intellectual Property Awareness Summit in New York on November 29 at Columbia University in the School of Journalism.

Confusion about the purpose and use of inventions, authored works and designs, and their rights, has led to widespread IP theft on the part of both individuals and businesses. Uncertainty inhibits innovation and competition, increases frustration and discourages investment. IPAS 2018 will examine ways to improve audiences’ basic IP awareness and appreciation.

The second annual Intellectual Property Awareness Summit – IP Literacy in a Digital World – will examine the impact of information and speed on how intellectual property is seen and often taken for granted, and ways to address it through education and the media.

IPAS 2017 (Enhancing Value Through Understanding), held at Illinois Institute of Technology/ Chicago-Kent College of Law, drew participants and panelists from the U.S., Europe and Asia, and provided opportunities to network and share ideas. Discussions included best ways to address the widespread confusion over IP rights, and the growing acceptance of IP theft.

Participants included Hon. Randall Rader, former Chief Judge of the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (ret.); Q. Todd Dickinson, ex-United Stated Under Secretary of Commerce, USPTO Director, Scott Frank, CEO of the IP Businesses at AT&T, Stephen Haber Director of Stamford’s IP² think tank and David Teece, UC Berkeley economist and IP advocate.

IPAS 2018 attendees will include IP holders, executives, educators, creators, service providers and IP organizations. Space is limited. To request an invitation, write explore@understandingip.org. Participants can expect interaction, networking and exploring the role of such groups as government, the media, and educators in making IP rights more intelligible, and the impact of failing to.

“Knowing what IP rights achieve is not just for lawyers,” said Bruce Berman, Chairman and founder of CIPU, an independent non-profit hosting IPAS 2018. “Patents and other IP are too important to ignore and not that difficult for most people to understand. IP is more easily accessible and easily infringed than ever, and many believe it is simply there for the taking.”

IP rights are central to more than 200 years of U.S. history. However, they have grown weaker and less certain over the past decade. Other nations are keenly aware. China, for example, has dramatically improved the reliability of its patent system and increased its investment in technology, which is threatening to dethrone the U.S. as the “go-to” nation for innovation and new ideas. A range of people and institutions that rely on IP need to know what is at stake and how to fix it.

“IPAS 2018 will explore the role of patents and other IP rights in a in an information-driven world,” said Brian Hinman, Chief Innovation Officer at Aon IP Solutions and a CIPU board member. “Everyone should be able to recognize and respect IP rights. This event will examine how to improve basic IP awareness and appreciation. IPAS speakers and panelists will look at ways to communicate IP’s vital link to innovation, commerce and society.”

About the Center for IP Understanding

The Center for Intellectual Property Understanding is an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to increasing awareness of IP rights and their impact on people’s lives. CIPU provides information, conducts research and facilitates activities that seek to make IP more intelligible, enhance value and deter theft. The Center also tracks attitudes toward IP rights, including patents, copyrights, and trademarks, and through outreach, provides an education framework for understanding how IP promotes competition and creates jobs.

Kansas Mesothelioma Victims Center Now Urges A Plumber in Kansas With Mesothelioma to Call Them About the Qualities Their Lawyer Must Have to Get the Best Financial Settlement – Don't Get Shortchanged

Skill, and experience should be at the top of your list when it comes to a hiring a lawyer to assist the family with a mesothelioma compensation claim-and we can help.”

— Kansas Mesothelioma Victims Center

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, July 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Kansas Mesothelioma Victims Center is encouraging a plumber, welder, electrician or construction worker with mesothelioma anywhere in Kansas to call them at 800-714-0303 about why it is vital to hire some of the nation's skilled lawyers if a person like this expects the best compensation results. As the group would like to explain to a diagnosed person or their family anytime–skill, and experience should be at the top of their list when it comes to a hiring a lawyer to assist the family with a mesothelioma compensation claim.

The Kansas Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "We want to make certain a plumber, welder, electrician or any kind of skilled trades worker in Kansas who has been diagnosed with mesothelioma gets the absolute best financial compensation settlement. As we would like to explain to anyone in this situation, or family members acting on behalf of a loved one, contacting us at 800-714-0303 betters your chances of getting the best possible compensation. We work extremely hard to connect you with some of the nation's most skilled mesothelioma attorneys who have decades of experience and have proven track records of earning the highest amount of compensation for their clients–we only suggest the best." http://Kansas.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

Vital Compensation Tip from the Kansas Mesothelioma Victims Center: "If you or a loved one has been recently diagnosed with mesothelioma, make a list of all the workplaces where asbestos exposure could have taken place as well as information on how the asbestos exposure could have occurred. Times and dates are critical, along with location. Perhaps most importantly are there witnesses who saw the victim's exposure to asbestos? As we would like to discuss anytime at 800-714-0303 It is this type of specific information that can dramatically increase the value of a mesothelioma compensation claim for you or your loved one–and we would like to help get you organized." http://Kansas.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The Mesothelioma Victims Center has provided access to the current Environment Protection Agency's web site as a reference about how seriously the federal government now takes exposure to asbestos.

SUBJECT: News Conference to Condemn MPD Officers’ Action on 6.13.18 Sheriff Road NE

LOCATION: 5214 Sheriff Road NE – Washington, DC

DATE AND TIME: Thursday – July 19, 2018 – 5:30pm

Washington (DC) – On June 13, 2018, a group of African-American males peacefully enjoying themselves in the 5200 block of Sheriff Road NE (Washington, DC), were attacked by DC Metropolitan Police Department. The young men did nothing wrong and did not permit a search by MPD officers.

In violation of the citizens’ Constitutional and human rights, several police officers detained and illegally searched them. Some were falsely arrested and beaten. Personal property such as cell phones were also destroyed by MPD police officers. Retaliatory arrests were also made the following day.

Chief Newsham denies claims that police used an undercover officer in the June 13 incident, and that there is a ‘spike in homicides’ in this particular neighborhood.

A yearlong WUSA9 investigation uncovered eight out of 10 people stopped and frisked by DC Police are African-American. It also found that the department has failed to follow a law passed in 2016 to better track stop and frisk in the district, as a way to protect against racial bias.

“He is calling my community liars,” says ANC Commissioner Anthony Lorenzo Green. “He’s calling the entire block liars.”

At a recent community meeting held July 12, 2018, a 16-year old youth said she feels harassed because police officers follow her and classmates to and from school, the store or the recreation center. https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/public-safety/dc-police-focus-on-communities-hit-by-a-rise-in-violence-but-residents-feel-targeted/2018/07/13/339ee47a-85c8-11e8-8553-a3ce89036c78_story.html?noredirect=on&utm_term=.92bb3b504760
